INTRODUCTION

Thank you very much for purchasing Digital Aviation & Aerosoft CRJ700/CRJ900 package. Development of the package went through a lot of highs and lows. Thank you for bearing with us.

The CRJ is a typical regional jet to connect smaller airports or remote areas with the bigger hubs. Hence the CRJ can get fast up to cruise altitude and stay there pretty long, but is not designed for world record cruise speeds.

The CRJ’s history goes back into the 80’s, when first studies were made regarding options to create a regional jet out of the Challenger 600 business jet. Near the end of the 80’s Lufthansa pushed the idea again and the project was actually started in 1989 with the maiden flight in 1991 and certification in 1992: the CRJ100 was born. The CRJ200 was developed later based on the CRJ100 and equipped with better engines. Both versions carry 50 passengers.

When the CRJ700 was developed, the fuselage was stretched further to accommodate 70 passengers. Accordingly, the wings needed to be modified, and furthermore new winglets and new engines were attached. Its maiden flight was in May of 1999. On basis of the CRJ700 the CRJ900 was developed. The fuselage was stretched again to accommodate 90 passengers.

The CRJ700 / 900 by Digital Aviation & Aerosoft comprises the CRJ700ER and CRJ900ER models with flight dynamics modelled according the respective flight performance data and of course 3d representations as close as possible in FS to the real thing. Accurate systems programming reflects behaviour of the real CRJ within normal operations.

The beta testers of this product deserve special mentioning. In this development, we experimented extensively with involving them directly in the production, they often tested code minutes after it was written, gave feedback and got new code almost immediate. Without them the product would not be where it is now.

We like to thank the following people for their patience and assistance: Daniel Desjardins, Emanuel Hagen, Finn Jacobsen., Thomas Lindner, Matt Parker, Brandon Promeneur, Aku Ronkainen, Tobias Timm, Otto Schafer.

We are too late to thank Andreas Kraft as he passed away unexpectedly during this production. Let it be known his assistance was very important.

WHY WAS THIS PRODUCT SO DELAYED?

Normally not something that is part of a manual, but let’s be honest, this was the most delayed project we ever managed. The delay was caused by underestimating the complexity. That caused the project to fall behind the schedule.

Now fast forward a year (keep in mind these are projects that normally span 30 months) and we noticed that what we considered state-of-the-art at the beginning was outdated and surpassed by many of our favorite competitors. So, you start to make plans to catch up, throw out stuff that is old and make new and better things. For example, the exterior of the aircraft was almost completely redone. But now you are not only developing but also catching up and that is devastating to any major project. All the time pressure is building and the project gets a bad reputation with management and customers. Not really the conditions that make a project flourish.

There were times we thought it was better to drop the whole thing and take our loss. It was the kindness of potential customers, who whacked trolls on the forum and told us to keep on working, that saved the project. They have no idea how important they were at certain crucial moments.

In the end, it is the project manager who is responsible. Nobody else. So, blame the author (MK) of this text and nobody else.

CONTACT SUPPORT

Support for this product is done by Aerosoft. We prefer to do support on the support forum for one simple reason, it is fast and efficient because customers help customers when we are sleeping. It’s also the difference between one support person reading the question and 500 people, some of why know a LOT about the aircraft.

CRJ Support Forums: http://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/forum/747-crj-700900/

If you prefer support by email: https://aerosoft.zendesk.com/anonymous_requests/new

Please note that email support can be slow when things are busy (shortly after a major release form example). We try to get back to you in 24 hours, but if you want an answer fast, got to the forums.

We feel strongly about support. Buying one of our products gives you the right to waste our time with questions you feel might be silly. They are not. We supply support in English, German, Dutch, French, Spanish and Portuguese.

NAVIGATION DATABASE

With this CRJ comes a complete copy of the NavDataPro navigation database. This database contains the May 2017 LIDO data and is the worlds most used navigation database in aircraft. The database is fully updateable; check its product page on our websites: www.aerosoft-shop.com/products/navdatapro/navdatapro.html

The CRJ is fully compatible with the well-known Navigraph database. Although these databases come from a different source and have some differences they are basically the same and you should not see any differences between the two.

VERSION NUMBERS

The release version number will be 1.00.

A service pack will show in the tens, 1.10 (first service pack) -> new full build

A hotfix will show in in the hundreds 1.11 (first hotfix to be put on service pack 1)

When there are many hotfixes we will also make full new builds. If you are ever in doubt which version you have, check the product.cfg that you can find in FSXMainFolder\Aerosoft\CRJ*.

AES & GSX

The configuration files for AES are standard installed in the aircraft folders.

The GSX configuration files are not standard installed because the folder for those files is not a standard folder of Windows, FSX or the CRJ. You will find the GSX configuration files in the FSXMainFolder\aerosoft\Digital Aviation CRJ folder. You must copy these to C:\Users\[User's Name]\AppData\Roaming\Virtuali\Airplanes.

A profile for EZDOK EZCA v2 can be found in FSXMainFolder\aerosoft\Digital Aviation CRJ

FRANK, OUR AVATAR

If you are using PREPAR3D v3 you will be able to use Frank, our pilot, as the avatar (see the P3D v3 documentation about information on avatars). When selecting an aircraft, you can also select the avatar to be loaded. You can load Frank with any aircraft btw. He is able to stand idle (duh..), walk, run, stand to crouch, walk while crouching, crouch to stand, jump, swim and fall, all using the default P3D v3 commands. To spawn the avatar, go to any external view and use the [shift]-[control]-[e] command. You can then use the avatar to explore the scenery.

THE CRJ IN FLIGHTSIM

The following chapter describes how to load the CRJ700 or CRJ900 in your flight simulator, which animations (like opening doors, cargo hatches) are available, a brief tour of the virtual cockpit with a short overview of available panels and pre-defined views, closing with the concept of operation (i.e. how do switches, pushbuttons, etc. work in your flight sim).

LOADING THE CRJ

It’s important that your simulator is running with Administrative rights to avoid problems. This is especially important when your simulator is installed in the default location (Program Files). If you are not logged in with administrative rights, you can still have the simulator running with Administrative rights by right clicking and selecting [Run as administrator].

Before loading the CRJ we STRONGLY advise you to load one of the default FSX aircraft with the engine running. This will avoid a load of problems.
